(also known as Bugbane, for those who aren’t southern New Englanders!) Doing its thing, looking good even when it has fallen over in a somewhat untidy spot. It could, of course, be standing up at about seven feet tall, but it is equally happy to snake about going where the wind and sun demand; hence, I think, its name. The bumblebees adore it, their whole attitude is that they can’t quite believe their good fortune: that fast, almost frantic shift from one little flower to the next. You’ll find four or five bees at anytime on every spike.
